The Stockholder Representative may dispute any amounts reflected on a Return Statement or the calculation of the Product Return Amount set forth thereon; provided, however, that the Stockholder Representative shall have notified Buyer in writing of each disputed item, specifying the amount thereof in dispute and setting forth, in reasonable detail, the basis for such dispute, as promptly as practicable but in any event no later than the 30th day following receipt by the Stockholder Representative of the Return Statement. In the event of such a dispute, Buyer and the Stockholder Representative shall attempt to reconcile their differences. If Buyer and the Stockholder Representative are unable to reach a resolution with such effect within thirty (30) days after receipt by Buyer of the Stockholder Representative's written notice of dispute, Buyer and the Stockholder Representative shall submit the items remaining in dispute for resolution to the Independent Accounting Firm, which shall, within thirty (30) days after such submission, determine and report to Buyer and the Stockholder Representative upon such remaining disputed items, and such report shall be final and binding on the Parties absent fraud or intentional misconduct. The Aggregate Accounting Fees relating to such dispute shall be allocated between Buyer, on the one hand, and the Sellers, on the other hand, as follows: a portion of the Aggregate Accounting Fees equal to the product of the Aggregate Accounting Fees and a fraction, the numerator of which is the aggregate dollar amount of the disputed items resolved by the Independent Accounting Firm in favor of Buyer and the denominator of which is the aggregate dollar amount of all disputed items submitted to the Independent Accounting Firm for resolution, shall be allocated to the Sellers, and the remainder shall be allocated to Buyer (in each case as finally determined by the Independent

Accounting Firm). In acting under this Agreement, the Independent Accounting Firm shall be entitled to the privileges and immunities of arbitrators.
     (d) Adjustments Final. A Return Statement and the aggregate Product Return Amount as of the date of such Return Statement shall be deemed final for the purposes of this Agreement upon the earlier of (i) the failure of the Stockholder Representative to notify Buyer of a dispute by the 30th day following receipt by the Stockholder Representative of such Return Statement, (ii) the resolution of all disputes pursuant to Section 2.6(c) by the Stockholder Representative and Buyer and (iii) the resolution of all disputes pursuant to Section 2.6(c) by the Independent Accounting Firm. The final determinations of such matters shall be non-appealable and incontestable by the Parties and each of their respective Affiliates and successors and assigns and not subject to collateral attack for any reason other than manifest error or fraud.
     (e) Reconciliation Payments. If the aggregate Product Return Amount as of the date of a Return Statement, as determined pursuant to this Section 2.6, exceeds the sum of $[...***...] plus the aggregate amount of all previous payments to the Buyer pursuant to this Section 2.6(e), then such excess shall be paid by the Escrow Agent to the Buyer from the Return Escrow Amount by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account designated by Buyer no later than five (5) business days following the final determination of such Product Return Amount in accordance with Section 2.6(d). Amounts held by the Escrow Agent pursuant to the Return Escrow Agreement shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the Buyer and its Affiliates (including the Surviving Corporation) in respect of any Product Return Amount. For the purposes of clarity, the Buyer shall not be entitled to any payment, pursuant to this Section 2.6 or otherwise, with respect to any portion of the aggregate Product Return Amount that is less than $[...***...] or with respect to any portion of the aggregate Product Return Amount that is in excess of $[...***...]. Any portion of the Return Escrow Amount not required to be disbursed to the Buyer pursuant to this Section 2.6(e) in respect of Return Statements delivered on or before the three (3) year anniversary of the Effective Time shall be promptly disbursed by the Escrow Agent to the Stockholder Representative (on behalf of the Sellers).

          3.11 Employee Benefit Plans.
     Schedule 3.11 sets forth a list of all bonus, deferred or incentive compensation, profit sharing, retirement, vacation, sick leave, disability, unemployment, accident, hospitalization or severance plans and agreements, "employee benefit plans" (as defined in Section 3(3) of ERISA), employment and consulting agreements, change in control agreements, retention and fringe benefit plans sponsored, maintained or contributed to by the Company or any ERISA Affiliate and in which the employees (or former employees) of the Company participate or are entitled to participate as of the Effective Date or within the six-year period ending on the Effective Date, whether or not in writing, funded or unfunded (including, without limitation, any "voluntary employees' beneficiary association" as defined in Section 501(c)(9) of the Code) (the "Benefit Plans"). The Company is neither a plan sponsor nor a "named fiduciary" of any Benefit Plan. The Company has made available to Buyer copies of all documents (including the most recent plan document incorporating all plan amendments, the most recent summary plan description and, if applicable, the most recent IRS determination or opinion letter) embodying the Benefit Plans, as well as annual reports (IRS Form 5500 series or the alternative filing, if applicable, under ERISA Regulation Section 2520.104-23) and certified financial statements for the most recently completed three fiscal years for each Benefit Plan required to file such form, copies of all documentation relating to the correction of any Benefit Plan defects under the IRS Employee Benefits Compliance Resolution System, Department of Labor Voluntary Fiduciary Correction program, Department of Labor Delinquent Filer Program or any other voluntary correction program. Each of the Benefit Plans and each related trust agreement, annuity contract or other funding instrument is, and has at all times been, in compliance in all material respects with its terms and the applicable provisions of ERISA and the Code, except

25


 

***Text Omitted and Filed Separately with the Securities and Exchange
Commission. Confidential Treatment Requested Under
17 C.F.R. Sections 200.80(b)(4) and 240.24b-2
where the failure to comply would not have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company. Each Benefit Plan that is subject to Section 401(a) or 408, as applicable, of the Code and each related trust agreement, annuity contract or other funding instrument is qualified and tax exempt under the applicable provisions of the Code. No Benefit Plan is a Multiemployer Plan, nor has the Company or any ERISA Affiliate incurred any withdrawal liability with respect to any Multiemployer Plan or any liability in connection with the termination or reorganization of any Multiemployer Plan. Except as otherwise set forth on Schedule 3.11, all contributions, premiums or payments under or with respect to each Benefit Plan are current and will have been paid as of the Closing Date or accrued on the Closing Date Balance Sheet. For this purpose, "current" and "accrued" shall include pro rata contributions, premiums and payments to each Benefit Plan for that portion of a plan year or other applicable period that precedes the Closing Date. No action is pending or, to the Sellers' Knowledge, threatened with respect to any Benefit Plan (other than claims for benefits in the ordinary course) and, to the Sellers' Knowledge, no fact or event exists that could give rise to any such action.
     Except as otherwise set forth on Schedule 3.11, neither the execution of this Agreement nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby will result in any payment (whether for separation pay or otherwise) becoming due from any of the Sellers, the Company or any ERISA Affiliate to any current or former employee, director, or consultant, or result in the vesting, acceleration of payment or increase in the amount of any benefit payable to or in respect of any such current or former employee, director, or consultant of any of the Sellers, the Company or any ERISA Affiliate. Other than agreements for which the Company will obtain the necessary stockholder approval pursuant to Section 7.10, there is no contract, agreement, plan or arrangement covering any current or former employee, director, or consultant of the Sellers, the Company or any ERISA Affiliate that individually or collectively could give rise to the payment of any amount that would not be deductible pursuant to the terms of Sections 162(a)(1), 162(m), and/or 280G of the Code or would require the payment of an excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code or of any "gross up" of any such excise tax. None of the Benefit Plans provides for payment of "parachute payments" (as defined in Section 280G(b)(2) of the Code), separation, severance, termination or similar type benefits to any person or obligates the Sellers or the Company to pay separation, severance, termination or similar type benefits solely as a result of any transaction contemplated by this Agreement or as a result of an event occurring under Section 280G(b)(2)(A)(i) of the Code. Except as required by applicable Legal Requirements, none of the Benefit Plans provides for or promises retiree medical, disability or life insurance benefits for any current or former employee, officer or director of the Company or any ERISA Affiliate or provides continuation coverage to any individual following termination of employment or service with the Company. Neither the Sellers nor any ERISA Affiliate have the right to modify or terminate any Benefit Plan that provides coverage or benefits for either or both retired and active employees and/or their beneficiaries. Each of the Benefit Plans is subject only to the laws of the United States or a political subdivision thereof. No Benefit Plan is an "employee stock ownership plan" (as defined in Section 4975(e)(7) of the Code) or a plan that is or was subject to Title IV of ERISA, Section 412 of the Code or Section 302 of ERISA.
     All persons classified by the Company as independent contractors satisfy and have at all times satisfied the requirements of applicable law to be so classified; the Company has fully and accurately reported their compensation on IRS Forms 1099 when required to do so; and the

Commission. Confidential Treatment Requested Under
17 C.F.R. Sections 200.80(b)(4) and 240.24b-2
Company has no obligations to provide benefits with respect to such persons under Benefit Plans or otherwise. The Company does not employ and has not employed any "leased employees" as defined in Section 414(n) of the Code.
     Each Benefit Plan that is subject to Section 409A of the Code has been maintained and operated in good faith based on the proposed or final regulations (as permitted by applicable guidance) and related IRS guidance issued and in effect with respect to Section 409A of the Code and has been, or will be prior to the Closing Date, amended to comply with Section 409A of the Code, and no Benefit Plan subject to Section 409A of the Code would, as a result of its form, trigger the imposition of penalty taxes under Section 409A of the Code.
     There has been no prohibited transaction (within the meaning of Section 406 of ERISA or Section 4975 of the Code) with respect to any Benefit Plan (for which an exemption does not exist under Section 408 of ERISA or Section 4975(d) of the Code), which could result in the imposition of any material liability on the Company. Neither the Company nor any ERISA Affiliate has incurred any liability for any material penalty or tax arising under Section 4971, 4972, 4980, 4980B or 6652 of the Code or any material liability under Section 502 of ERISA, and, to the Sellers' Knowledge, no fact or event exists which could give rise to any such liability. To the Sellers' Knowledge, none of Sellers, the Company nor any ERISA Affiliate has participated in a violation of Part 4 of Title I, Subtitle B of ERISA by any fiduciary of a Benefit Plan or has any unpaid civil penalty under Section 502(l) of ERISA.
          3.12 Company Products; Compliance with Legal Requirements; Permits.

Each Governmental Authorization listed in Schedule 3.12(b) is valid and in full force and effect. Except as set forth in Schedule 3.12(b):

          9.4 Employee Benefit Arrangements.
     Buyer shall have no liability with respect to any of the Benefit Plans and the Sellers and the Company shall terminate all Benefit Plans sponsored by the Company immediately prior to the Closing Date or take all necessary action to cause the Company to cease to be a participating employer in any Benefit Plans sponsored by the Sellers. However, for a period of at least one year after the Closing Date, for so long as the Surviving Corporation continues to employ an individual who was an employee of the Company at Closing, Buyer agrees to cause the Surviving Corporation to pay to such employee substantially similar compensation (including base salary and a comparable bonus plan, but excluding equity or phantom equity awards and 401(k) match contributions) as that paid by the Company to such employee immediately prior to the Closing, and to provide such employee with Buyer benefits that are substantially similar in the aggregate to the benefits provided to such employee under the Benefit Plans immediately prior to the Closing. In addition, Buyer shall cause the Surviving Corporation to (a) grant credit to each employee of the Company for all unused vacation and sick leave existing as of the Closing and (b) recognize service with the Company prior to the Closing as deemed service with the Surviving Corporation for purposes of any length of service requirements, waiting periods, vesting periods (other than with respect to any Buyer equity incentives) and differential benefits based on length of service, and with credit under any welfare benefit plan for any deductibles or co-insurance paid for the current plan year under any plan maintained by the Company, to the extent permitted by such plan. To the extent any amounts payable to or for the benefit of the employees of the Company with respect to any Benefit Plan or otherwise is set forth on the Closing Date Balance Sheet, Buyer agrees to cause the Surviving Corporation to pay such amounts to or for the benefit of the employees of the Company. In the event that the Buyer or the Surviving Corporation terminates any employee after the Closing without cause, the Buyer shall be responsible for the payment of any applicable Buyer Severance Expenses.
          9.5 Cooperation on Tax Matters; Transfer Taxes.
     (a) The Sellers shall cause to be prepared and submit to the Buyer for timely filing all Tax Returns of the Company for the taxable periods ending on or prior to the Closing Date ("Pre-Closing Tax Period") that are due after the Closing Date and Sellers shall pay any Taxes due thereon. After the Closing and in connection with the preparation of any such Tax Returns, Buyer and the Surviving Corporation shall grant or cause to be granted to the Sellers, or their representatives, access to all of the information, books and records relating to the Company within Buyer's or the Surviving Corporation's possession or control and shall furnish the assistance and cooperation of such personnel of Buyer and the Surviving Corporation as may reasonably be requested in connection therewith. Sellers shall be entitled to any credits or refunds of income Taxes of the Company with respect to any taxable periods of the Company ending before the Closing Date. Buyer shall prepare or cause to be prepared and file or cause to be filed any Tax Returns of the Surviving Corporation for periods that end after the Closing Date; it being understood that all Taxes shown as due and payable on such Tax Returns shall be the responsibility of Buyer. The Parties further agree and acknowledge that (i) the Company's Transaction Expenses not subject to capitalization shall be expenses of the Company reported on its Tax Returns for the short taxable year ending on the Closing Date, and (ii) neither the

Surviving Corporation nor Buyer shall deduct the Company's Transaction Expenses not subject to capitalization on any Tax Return for any taxable period beginning after the Closing Date.
     (b) The Sellers shall be liable for, and shall pay any and all transfer, sales, use, excise, goods and services, health services, conveyance, recording or any other similar fees or Taxes (including, without limitation, title recording or filing fees, transfer Taxes and other amounts payable in respect of transfer filings), and all documentary or other stamp Taxes, arising out of or related to the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The Parties shall consult with each other in good faith and shall cooperate fully with each other in planning for the reduction or elimination of any such Taxes.
     (c) If a claim for Taxes, including, without limitation, notice of a pending or threatened audit, shall be made by any Taxing Authority in writing (a "Tax Claim"), which, if successful, might result in an indemnity payment pursuant to this Agreement, the party seeking indemnification (the "Tax Indemnified Party") shall notify the other party (the "Tax Indemnifying Party") in writing of the Tax Claim within 15 business days of receipt of such Tax Claim. If notice of a Tax Claim (a "Tax Notice") is not given to the Tax Indemnifying Party within such 15 day period, the Tax Indemnifying Party shall not be liable to the Tax Indemnified Party to the extent the Tax Indemnified Party was materially prejudiced by such delay. The Sellers shall have the sole right to represent the interests of the Surviving Corporation in any Tax audit or administrative or court proceeding relating to the Pre-Closing Tax Period, and to employ counsel of their choice; provided, however, if any issue or potential adjustment in such proceeding would or could result in an increase in the Surviving Corporation's Taxes for any period following the Closing Date, then the Surviving Corporation shall have the right to participate in such proceeding (as it relates to such issue or adjustment) and Sellers shall not be entitled to settle or compromise such issue or adjustment without the prior consent of the Surviving Corporation. If the Sellers decide not exercise such right, the Sellers shall be entitled to participate in the defense of any claim for Taxes for the Pre-Closing Tax Period that may be subject to indemnification by the Sellers pursuant to this Section 9.5. Notwithstanding the foregoing, neither Buyer nor the Surviving Corporation shall be entitled to settle, either administratively or after the commencement of litigation, any claim for Taxes that would result in a claim for indemnification pursuant to Section 9.5 without the prior written consent of the Stockholder Representative.
     (d) Until the Closing Date, the Company shall not make or change any material election in respect to Taxes, adopt or change any accounting method in respect to Taxes, enter into any closing agreement settle any claim or assessment in respect of Taxes, file any amended Tax return, surrender any refund claim, or consent to any extension or waiver of the limitation period or period of assessment or reassessment applicable to any claim or assessment in respect of Taxes, except with the prior written consent of Buyer, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
     (e) The Stockholder Representative shall be entitled, where permitted by law, to elect to carry back to a Pre-Closing Tax Period or Periods any net operating loss, net capital loss, charitable contribution or other Tax item attributable to the Pre-Closing Tax Period. In connection therewith, the Buyer or the Surviving Corporation shall permit the Stockholder

Any refunds or credits of Taxes of the Company received from the applicable Taxing Authority for the Pre-Closing Tax Period (including, without limitation, refunds or credits arising by reason of amended Tax Returns filed after the Closing Date) shall be for the account of the Sellers and shall be paid by Buyer or the Surviving Corporation to the Stockholder Representative within 10 days after Buyer or the Surviving Corporation receives such refund or after the relevant Tax Return is filed in which the credit is applied against the Surviving Corporation's or Buyer's or their Affiliates' liability for Taxes.
     (f) Except for the offset rights set forth in Section 11.8, this Section 9.5 shall govern the procedures with respect to Taxes. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, the covenants, agreements and obligations of the Parties in this Section 9.5 shall survive the Closing.
          9.6 Restrictive Covenants.
     (a) Each Seller covenants that, during the Noncompetition Period, such Seller shall not, and it shall cause its Affiliates not to, directly or indirectly, in any capacity, work for, engage in or have any direct or indirect ownership interest in, or permit such Seller's or any such Affiliate's name to be used in connection with, any business anywhere in the United States which is engaged, either directly or indirectly, in the business of developing, marketing or selling any dermatologic products that are competitive with products manufactured, marketed, and sold by, or services provided by, the Company as of the Effective Date; provided, however, such Seller and its Affiliates shall be able to sell skin products in the acute care (i.e., hospital, wound care clinics, surgery centers, outpatient clinics and home health) and extended care (i.e., nursing home and retirement home) markets as well as wound care products in the dermatology market for the treatment, prevention or healing of wounds; and, provided further, such Seller and its Affiliates shall continue to have the ability to manufacture and perform research and development and other services related to such products as well as dermatologic products of any kind or nature, including dermatologic products substantially similar to and in direct competition with any of the Company Products or future products to be developed by the Buyer or its Affiliates, provided that the Sellers do not use or otherwise disclose any Company Intellectual Property in the process of performing and/or providing such services, and provided further, that such manufacturing, research and development activities or other related services are for the sole benefit of and on behalf of unaffiliated independent third parties (the "Restricted Business"). It is recognized that the Restricted Business is expected to be conducted throughout the United States and that more narrow geographical limitations of any nature on this non-competition covenant (and the non-solicitation covenant set forth in Section 9.6(b)) are therefore not appropriate.
     (b) Each Seller covenants that, commencing on the Closing Date and for a period of 24 months after the Closing Date, such Seller shall not, and it shall cause its Affiliates not to,

     (c) The Sellers acknowledge that the restrictions contained in this Section 9.6 are reasonable and necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the Buyer and constitute a material inducement to Buyer to enter into this Agreement and consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The Sellers acknowledge that any violation of this Section 9.6 will result in irreparable injury to Buyer and agree that Buyer shall be entitled to preliminary and permanent injunctive relief without the necessity of proving actual damages.
     (d) In the event that any covenant contained in this Section 9.6 should ever be adjudicated to exceed the time, geographic, product or service or other limitations permitted by applicable Legal Requirements in any jurisdiction, then any court is expressly empowered to reform such covenant, and such covenant shall be deemed reformed, in such jurisdiction to the maximum time, geographic, product or service or other limitations permitted by applicable Legal Requirements. The covenants contained in this Section 9.6 and each provision thereof are severable and distinct covenants and provisions. The invalidity or unenforceability of any such covenant or provision as written shall not invalidate or render unenforceable the remaining covenants or provisions hereof, and any such invalidity or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such covenant or provision in any other jurisdiction.
          9.7 Confidential Information.
               The Sellers covenant that they shall, and shall cause their Affiliates to, hold confidential all Company Intellectual Property and all other proprietary technical, financial and business information relating to the Company, which may include, but is not limited to, technical data, trade secrets, know-how, intellectual property or other materials owned or controlled by the Company at the time of Closing, including, but not limited to, research, product plans, products, samples, specifications, service plans, services, customer lists, customers, markets, software, developments, inventions, processes, formulas, chemical applications, laboratory instruments, laboratory methods of analysis, interpretation of lab results, techniques, technology, manufacturing methods, designs, drawings, engineering, marketing, distribution and sales methods and systems, sales and profit figures, finances and other business information, and all analyses, compilations, studies or other materials prepared by or on behalf of the Company.

to materiality or Material Adverse Effect contained in such representation or warranty or covenant; provided, however, that no individual claim by a Seller Indemnitee may be asserted, and Buyer and Newco (and with respect to any period after the Effective Time, the Surviving Corporation) shall have no indemnification obligation under Section 11.3(a)(i) with respect to any such claim for breach of representation or warranty qualified by materiality or Material Adverse Effect, unless the aggregate amount of Losses that would be payable with respect to such claim exceeds an amount equal to $[...***...] (it being understood that similar individual claims will be aggregated for purposes of this Section 11.3(d)).
          11.4 Notice of Potential Claims for Indemnification.
     Except as otherwise provided in Section 9.5(c), a party entitled to indemnification under Section 11.2 or Section 11.3 (the "Indemnitee") shall give the party obligated to provide such indemnification (the "Indemnifying Party") prompt written notice (an "Indemnification Notice") of any matter or event that could give rise to any Losses for which indemnification under this Article 11 may be due, including but not limited to any Third Party Claim, which, with the lapse of time, the giving of notice or both, would give rise to a claim or the commencement of any litigation that may result in Losses (an "Asserted Liability"). Each Indemnification Notice shall specify with particularity the basis on which indemnification is sought and the Indemnitee's good faith estimate of the amount of its Losses and/or Asserted Liability and, in the case of a Third Party Claim, contain (by attachment or otherwise) all such other information as such Indemnitee may have concerning such Third Party Claim. After the delivery of an Indemnification Notice, the Indemnitee shall provide prompt written notice to the Indemnifying Party of all developments relating to the related Losses or Asserted Liability and any material changes in the Indemnitee's good faith estimate of the amount of its Losses or Asserted Liability. The Indemnitee shall provide the Indemnifying Party with access, upon reasonable notice and during normal business hours, to its books and records, properties and personnel relating to the Losses or Asserted Liability. The Indemnitee will not be entitled to indemnification for Losses or Asserted Liabilities of the Indemnitee to the extent that any unreasonable delay in providing an Indemnification Notice or notice of future developments or other failure to follow the procedures set forth in this Article 11 prejudices the Indemnifying Party's ability to defend a Third Party Claim or otherwise affects the Indemnifying Party's ability to reduce the amount of indemnifiable Losses.
          11.5 Claims Not Involving Third Parties.
     Upon receipt of an Indemnification Notice not involving a Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall have twenty (20) business days to object to the claim set forth in the Indemnification Notice by delivery of a written objection (an "Objection") to the Indemnitee specifying in reasonable detail the basis for such objection. Failure to timely deliver an Objection shall constitute a final and binding acceptance of the claim by the Indemnifying Party. If the Indemnifying Party timely delivers an Objection, the parties shall in good faith seek to resolve any dispute within the twenty (20) business day period following the Objection (the "Dispute Resolution Period"). If the parties have not resolved their dispute within the Dispute Resolution Period, either Party may bring an action pursuant to Section 12.8 and the parties shall proceed in accordance therewith. Upon resolution of a dispute and the determination of indemnifiable Losses pursuant to a final, non-appealable order in favor of an Indemnitee, such Indemnitee shall be entitled to be paid

by the Indemnifying Party an aggregate amount equal to such Losses within five (5) business days of such order by wire transfer of immediately available funds to such account as such Indemnitee may specify in writing to the Indemnifying Party.
          11.6 Third Party Claims.
     The obligations and liabilities of an Indemnifying Party hereunder with respect to a Third Party Claim for which an Indemnitee is entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Article 11 shall be subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Article 11. An Indemnifying Party shall have the right to contest any Asserted Liability so long as it shall within thirty (30) days (or sooner, if the nature of the Asserted Liability so requires) notify the Indemnitee of its intent to do so by sending a notice to the Indemnitee. An Indemnifying Party shall not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement with respect to the Asserted Liability without the prior written consent of the Indemnitee, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld. So long as the Indemnifying Party is contesting any Asserted Liability, the Indemnitee shall not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement with respect to the Asserted Liability. If the Indemnifying Party elects not to contest the Asserted Liability, the Indemnitee (upon further notice to the Indemnifying Party) shall have the right to pay, compromise or contest such Asserted Liability, provided that Indemnitee obtains the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld. In any event, the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnitee may participate, at their own expense, in the contest of an Asserted Liability. The Indemnifying Party and the Indemnitee shall cooperate fully with each other as to all Asserted Liabilities, shall make available to each other as reasonably requested all information, records, and documents relating to all Asserted Liabilities and shall preserve all such information, records, and documents until the termination of any Asserted Liability.
          11.7 Subrogation.
     Upon payment of any Losses or the payment of any judgment or settlement with respect to a Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall be subrogated to the extent of such payment to the rights of the Indemnitee against any person or entity with respect to the subject matter of such Losses or Third Party Claim. The Indemnitee shall assign or otherwise cooperate with the Indemnifying Party, at the cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party, to pursue any claims against, or otherwise recover amounts from, any Person liable or responsible for any Losses for which indemnification has been received pursuant to this Agreement.
          11.8 Insurance and Other Recoveries.
     Losses and all indemnification payments payable hereunder shall be reduced by the amount of insurance proceeds actually received by the Indemnitee or its Affiliates (net of any applicable deductible) as a result of the Losses for which the Indemnitee is seeking indemnification.
          11.9 Acknowledgement of Buyer.
     Buyer acknowledges that it has (a) conducted to its satisfaction an independent investigation and verification of the financial condition, results of operations, assets, liabilities, properties and projected operations of the Company and (b) relied on the results of its own independent

investigation and verification and the representations and warranties of the Sellers expressly and specifically set forth in this Agreement, including the Disclosure Schedules (and updated Disclosure Schedules), in making its determination to proceed with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The representations and warranties of the Sellers expressly and specifically set forth in this Agreement, including the Disclosure Schedules (and updated Disclosure Schedules), constitute the sole and exclusive representations and warranties of the Sellers and the Company to Buyer in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, and Buyer understands, acknowledges and agrees that all other representations and warranties of any kind or nature expressed or implied (including, but not limited to, any relating to the future or historical financial condition, results of operations, assets or liabilities of the Company, or the quality, quantity or condition of the Company's assets) are specifically disclaimed by the Sellers (on behalf of themselves and the Company). The Sellers and the Company do not make or provide, and Buyer hereby waives, any warranty or representation, express or implied, as to the quality, merchantability, fitness as for a particular purpose, conformity to samples, or condition of the Company's assets or any part thereto, except as expressly set forth in Section 3.7. In connection with Buyer's investigation of the Company, Buyer has received certain projections, pro forma financials or adjustments, including projected statements of operating revenues and income from operations of the Company and certain business plan information. Buyer acknowledges that there are uncertainties inherent in attempting to make such estimates, projections, forecasts, pro forma financials, adjustments and plans, that Buyer is familiar with such uncertainties and that Buyer is taking full responsibility for such estimates, projections, forecasts, pro forma financials, adjustments and plans so furnished to it, including, without limitation, the reasonableness of the assumptions underlying such estimates, projections, forecasts, pro forma financials, adjustments and plans Accordingly, Buyer hereby acknowledges that neither the Company nor the Sellers is making any representation or warranty with respect to such estimates, projections, forecasts, pro forma financials, adjustments and plans, including, without limitation, the reasonableness of the assumptions underlying same.
          11.10 Stockholder Representative.
     Each of the Sellers hereby appoint DFB or its agents, successors or assigns as their exclusive agent and attorney-in-fact to act on its behalf with respect to any claims, controversies, or disputes arising out of the terms of this Agreement (the "Stockholder Representative"). The Sellers further agree that the Stockholder Representative shall have the power to (a) receive all notices and communications directed to the Sellers with respect to any claims, controversies, or disputes arising out of the terms of this Agreement and to take any action or no action in connection therewith as it may deem appropriate, and (b) to take any action (or determine to take no action) with respect to the foregoing appointment and authority as it may deem appropriate as effectively as the Sellers could act themselves, including the settlement or compromise of any dispute or controversy under the indemnification provisions hereof, the Indemnity Escrow Agreement, the Return Escrow Agreement or any other document entered into in connection herewith. The authority granted hereunder is deemed to be coupled with an interest. For purposes of clarity, the adoption of this Agreement by the Sellers constitutes approval of the appointment of DFB to serve as the Sellers' representative on such indemnification matters and to have sole power with respect to the authorization of disbursements of funds from the Escrow Amounts to Buyer.
